Learning from Home in Shell

10 Parent Tips for Remote Learning

When the Government told schools to close from 20th March and everyone to work from home, children in Shell were given learning packs to work on remotely.

Their teachers were available to talk via email and in the summer term, further resources were available for online teaching and learning - further details are in the document here and below.


Here is a message recorded by Mrs Brooks on 20th March to the Shell pupils.





Feedback and Comments from Parents

"May I just take this opportunity to thank you for all your incredible hard work in preparing each lesson and enabling the children to continue to learn during this unusual time, and to be able to have some kind of face to face contact with their teachers and friends. We are so impressed and appreciative of the time and organisation that has been required to deliver the boys' education throughout lockdown. Thank you and all of your staff for your efforts."

"I just want to say a huge thank you, I think the teachers were absolutely fantastic on their Zoom classes and it all seems extremely organised!!! It can't be easy to organise, nor to please everyone, but we are more than happy!!"

"Thanks for all the online work activities - [our daughter] is enjoying being ‘back at school’!"

"Thank you to you and team Shell for doing all this work. I was dreading home schooling but you are making it manageable."

"We are extremely grateful that the College have such dedicated staff and resources to put on a high quality, remote learning programme which is so carefully thought out. As ever, it is evident the College go above and beyond in the support provided to pupils and respond quickly to change and challenges."

"May I also take this opportunity to thank you personally and your colleagues in Shell for your support this term. The work [our son] has received has been spot on in terms of amount and level and he has kept thoroughly engaged throughout the day. I know how long each lesson takes to prepare. The twice daily Zoom calls have also provided [our son] with lots of interaction and light relief from the monotony of lockdown."
